Make Way for the Women

Although chauvinistic attitudes still stand in their way, a new group of women has risen to the challenge of leading the 21st century church.
Early in her ministry career, Bible teacher Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, was snubbed when a group of male pastors turned their chairs around to indicate their objection to being addressed by a female preacher. Yet since that time—the early 1980s—she has traveled around the world, speaking to audiences of both men and women from platforms offered to her not by women only but also by prominent male leaders, including, in the years before his death, Campus Crusade founder Bill Bright.

Lotz's current liberty to preach to both genders in high-profile venues is not singular. Throughout Christendom "something is happening for women," as Bonnie and Mahesh Chavda declare in their 2006 book, The Hidden Power of a Woman. In both denominational and nondenominational—particularly Pentecostal-charismatic settings—women are taking their places alongside men as ministers of the gospel. read more
